We Use the Best Essential Oils for Soy Candles

Ahuru candles are made with 100% pure essential oils to produce our amazing signature scents.

Although it's harder and more expensive to make candles with essential oils compare to fragrance oils, there are so many benefits (more about this below).

We also use natural soy wax and woodwicks to make the best-scented soy candles with soothing crackling wick sounds.

Making Soy Candles with Essential Oils

At Ahuru Candles, we are very mindful and careful of the essential oils we use for our candles.

All our essential oils are sources from professional and ethical suppliers. They have rigorous quality control standards, and Gas Chromatograph (GC) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) are also used to ensure quality.

From the creator of Ahuru Candles:

"I spent most of my childhood growing up in New Zealand, surrounded by lush greens, colourful flowers and blue skies, and I missed being in touch with nature again.

Āhuru was born from my vision to help people create such beautiful moments in life, as well as to enhance our well-being through the use of all-natural products from Mother Earth"

Fragrance oils vs Essential oils in candles

Essential oils are pure aromatic essence

Essential oils are pure natural aromatic essence

Essential oils are extracted from a various of aromatic plant material including grasses, leaves, flowers, needles, twigs, fruit peels, seeds, bark, and roots. The essential oils within a plant are Mother Nature's creations, and they are not mixed with other artificial substances.

Synthetic fragrance oils are artificially created from chemical compounds that do not exist in nature. They can also be harmful to your body! 

Some fragrance oils can be natural (natural fragrance oils), but they are created by isolating one of the natural aromatic components from a complex compound. When you extract an essential oil you are taking the entire scent.

Although essential oils are more expensive and more are required to make a scented candle, they offer a natural aromatic scent, along with therapeutic benefits. 

Essential oil candles are therapeutic

Essential oils have therapeutic effects

Essential oils are not only aromatic, but the natural chemical composition also offers therapeutic benefits. For example, lavender essential oil has a relaxing aroma that helps relieve tension with its soothing, calming and harmonizing effect on the nerves.

Fragrance oils cannot provide the same benefits, as they’re only designed for imitating scents only.

Essential oil candles are safe

Essential oils are tested thoroughly

The essential oil industry is characterized by more extensive testing and quality control to ensure the high standards and the safety. However, a synthetic fragrance does not require such rigorous testing.

The natural scent from the essential oil is so much better compare to any perfumed candles I've bought in the past. I used to get headache from lighting scented candles for too long, but it doesn't happen with Ahuru candles.


Lavender candle's always been my favourite and it does help to get a goo night sleep. The essential oil smells natural not too strong like cheap fragrance. 


I got a Peppermint & Eucalyptus an I love it so much so I wanted to try others. For the price, it's super worth it to get the clean/refreshing smell and helps me get a peace of mind at home when I'm getting work done!
